December Stitch Fix {review}

Woop woop!! My very first fix came the other day.  It couldn't have been a better day, as we were snowed in and being large and in charge, ain't nobody got time to waddle around looking for clothes that don't really fit anyway. Baha.

So, real quick, what is Stitch Fix? It's basically where an online stylist takes your personal info, {you fill out a cool profile about your style} and then you can write a note with any added information that you think may help your stylist.  For me, it was that I am super duper prego and about ready to give birth, so I was looking for more accent pieces and transitional items to take me into postpartum/nursing.

You do pay $20 for a styling fee, but once you receive your fix, that will go towards any items that you keep.  If you choose to keep all 5 items, then you will also receive an extra 25% off your purchase!

Another way to save money? Referrals. I love when companies offer referrals.  For every person that schedules a fix, when it ships, you will receive $25 credit!! I loved that I could give that to my girl Jamie that raved about this service.  So, if you like what you see and would love to give this a whirl, you can use my code here Stitch Fix Referral and then you will get your own referral code to share with your friends and family.  How awesome?!

I opened her up and she's so pretty! Hey, when you're this pregnant and pretty much house bound due to weather (and size) you get excited over silly things, mmmm k?

I ripped everything open as fast as I could and loved that they send you style cards with two different ways of wearing the items.  I don't have to think==winning--and I didn't have to waste time Pinteresting. Fab!

So, what did I love? Hate? Keep? Return?  Well, you know how I feel about this bad boy cardi. I'm talking old school Mr. Rogers, super soft and just hugs you in all the right spots.  I got a medium and it definitely ran a bit big, but I like that in the winter (and in the last stage of pregnancy/postpartum).


Navy blue cotton maxi dress. Feels like butter on your skin, for real.  I will admit, I don't know how flattering I feel in it right now, as I am the size of a house, but I am so in love with it.

I love that it is blue {for baby boy?!} and the top/breast part is already really stretchy, so it's perfect to nurse in!! Seriously, I am huge people haha!  I didn't realize how big my belly was until I saw it in this dress. It's also a size medium, and clearly fits a 9 month prego booty/belly and I am about 5'8 so I think the length is fairly decent too.



Next up, as my husband would say, "Bird bird bird, bird is the word…" no really, this adorable bird infinity scarf!! I thought it matched well with the dress even.   Soft, and just the right amount of 'fluff' to create that pretty, cozy, look for winter.


See how happy that grey cardigan makes me?!  It goes with the maxi too! I'm half tempted to pack this maxi in my hospital bag to come home in, as you just want comfort and looking sort of cute is always a perk!

I wanna say this length would cover my bum in leggings too.  #sweet

Next up was the faux leather sleeve jacket thingy.. Aka super cute and trendy, but I just have too many lady lumps going on to enjoy it…this medium fit a lot more snug than the others as well.


I know it doesn't even match the dress, but I just think it wouldn't really look right on me for quite some time and I just didn't love it.

Finally, was another cardigan, but more fitted.  This medium was smaller and while cute, I could not justify purchasing, simply because…

I already own this light grey gold sequin elbow-patched cardigan!

My stylist clearly nailed it, but I just bought the one on the right off and so, mama doesn't need two.  Sorry boos!


So out of 5 items, I'm only sending back these 2!

Now I just have to toss them in the return bag, which is already postmarked and then pay for my goodies I am keeping.  Oh, and I have to patiently wait until my next fix, which oddly enough, may not be here until baby boy?!  I can't wait!!

Overall Thoughts?

I think that because I was brutally honest in my note to my stylist, she was able to really find things I was looking for.  Creating the profile was a lot of fun, but if you're picky about certain items, let them know!! I think it helps them create your fix a lot better.  I'm only sad I didn't start this service sooner! I obviously had so much fun opening it up and trying on things, even if I didn't love them, it was still fun to do.  I cannot stress enough, if you're someone who doesn't get to a mall that often or have the time to really dig around looking for things, give this a shot!  Ya never know what you may fall in love with.   The prices can be a little high, but you have to factor in the quality of your items, the shipping both ways is covered, AND you got a stylist.  Again, I can't tell you how nice it was to have new clothes without having to think and go out in a blizzard 9 months prego to get them!

Feel free to ask me any questions about this.  My thoughts and opinions are my own and I certainly just want to share things that I am loving on my blog.  

Do you already have Stitch Fix?  Leave me a comment below, as I love seeing what others get in their fixes too!! If you do sign up, let me know so I can check out your goods as well!  Happy weekend friends.
